The popularity of healing stones

Healing crystals are becoming increasingly popular, with people using gemstones to balance energies and become more attuned to their body and mind.

Crystals have been used for thousands of years, with ancient people using them for magical and spiritual powers. Although there is no evidence to show that crystal healing works and is not a form of medicine, more and more people are being open to trying the possible benefits that crystals bring.

Crystals are believed to hold vibrational energy and believed to transmit this energy to you and balance your emotional, physical and spiritual energies.

Below you'll be able to find out more about chakras, as well as discover our chakra round beads, a chakra collection and exciting jewellery ideas that you can easily create yourself, without any need of jewellery making experience.

What is chakra?

Chakra is an ancient meditation practice and originates from an old Sanskrit word, translating to 'wheel'. Chakra represents the 7 chakras around your body, with 7 different centres of energy. Each chakra is connected to one area of the body and an emotional state. It is believed that by balancing these energies your emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing will benefit.

How do I use chakra healing stones?

Choose your favourite gemstones linked to the chakras and use them to re-tune your chakras and balance your energies.

There are several ways to use the stones in everyday life, here are some examples:

- Wear the stones as jewellery over the chakra locations

- Meditate with the stones

- Keep a stone in your pocket or on your person

- Add them to your bath water

- Sleep with the stone under your pillow or next to your bed
